We will have our own cinema!

1940s cinema comes to Atlantic SEAL. Our students young and old love watching movies and making movies here as part of our innovative way to learn and use English in the most creative way. Now we have bought LOTS of authentic vintage cinema seats from the 1940s (original seats of the iconic Capitol Cinema) so that our students can really get to feel they are at the cinema and also enjoy the movies THEY make look really professional. We have a huge screen, the perfect space and plenty of popcorn!. Lights out - action!

Atlantic SEAL year round building triples its size, but not its student numbers, offering high standard facilities for our much valued learners.

We are growing, but not going anywhere. How could this be possible? Easy - Atlantic SEAL has acquired the large building next door to our current year round adult school - it used to be a pub/restaurant and lots of living space and big garden that joins the schools current 'secret' garden at the back. This will provide extra top standard ecologically restored accommodation for our student and extra classroom space, extra relaxing lounges and leisure areas and an even bigger garden at the back which meets our current beautiful 'Main Street Secret Garden''. We don't want to get bigger, we are a purposely small school in a beautiful small Atlantic-side town, but we DO want to give our valued. students a superior experience. Perhaps we will be the only English language school in Ireland or the world with its own Irish pub on site?. In addition to the option to live in a host family or one of our other town and Atlantic-side apartments, this new socialising centre right on Main St. offers the best way to practise English with school friends and locals alike!

53% of all students 2019 are returnees

It's like one big family reunion this year. Most of our staff and 53% of our students have been with us at least once and some 3 or 4 times before. Many of our staff have been with us for over a decade! We love new students who enjoy the experience for the first time, and we love when our old students come back and say it's always different each year.

20 years in the breathtaking Atlantic-side location of Schull, Co. Cork, Ireland. We now welcome the children of teenagers who came to us a decade or two ago! Thousands of students aged 4 to 84 have come though the doors of our three separate but close by centres and yet numbers are always kept strictly small while the nationality variety is always very wide.
